Jesus Calls International * March 2018 * www.

Beloved in Christ, My loving greetings to you in the Name of the Risen Lord Jesus Christ! I earnestly pray that the power of the Father which delivered our Lord Jesus from the clutches of death and made Him victorious, will grant you a double portion of the blessings that you lost as well as renew all broken relationships. According to the verse - “…Who crowns you with loving-kindness and tender mercies,” (Psalm 103:4) the Lord will crown you and your loved ones this month with all goodness and mercies and grant you joy and honour. The vision given to us for the year 2018 is to proclaim the love of Jesus and present Him as a gift to 25 million new souls. Since the love of Christ constrains our soul, we pray and do ministry unceasingly. This month also, I lovingly ask you to pray for the ‘Jesus Calls’ ministry as it takes the love, the comfort and the healing power of God to people who have not come to know Him yet and also to support this ministry with your generous offerings. Through your great support we could dedicate the 105th Jesus Calls Prayer Tower in Nizamabad Jesus Calls International * March 2018 * www.

These ambassadors will form prayer groups and Esther Prayer Groups in their locality and will also pray for the ministry, families as well as our country. These prayer groups will then join together and conduct a Special Blessing Meeting called the ‘Mission Network’, which will then bring about establishing of new ‘Jesus Calls’ Prayer Tower in that locality for the people who participate in these prayer meetings and conducting of ‘Jesus Calls’ Prayer Festivals for people to be blessed. We can definitely present the Lord Jesus as a gift to many through the ambassador ministry which proclaims the good news to every soul and takes the gospel to the multitudes.

In this regard, we are planning to conduct a World Prayer Convention at Jerusalem from 22nd to 24th of May 2018 so that people from all over the world will come and participate in it. World renowned Evangelists are to participate in that Convention along with us and deliver God’s messages and offer powerful prayers. I request you to take part in this convention along with your family and also request pastors to kindly encourage their church believers to participate in this convention. The people who have returned from the ‘Jesus Calls’ Prayer Tower at Jerusalem after prophesying to the nations are being used in a mighty way by the Lord in their locality.

Shekinah Glory at Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India Jesus Calls Partners Meet on 20th January 2018 On 20th January 2018, Dr. Paul Dhinakaran and Mrs. Evangeline Paul Dhinakaran ministered to the partners of the Jesus Calls ministry and their families. Rt.Rev.Oommen George, Bishop of the Kollam - Kottarakkara Diocese of CSI and partner of the Jesus Calls ministry inaugurated the registration of the forthcoming Prophetic Conference to be held from July 12 to 14, 2018 at Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala.

went through several problems, shame and sickness and was rejected by everyone. I then happened to attend the Jesus calls meetings held at Puthrikandam grounds, Thiruvananthapuram in the year 2002. I sat far behind in that ground hiding myself from others. I who knew nothing about prayer or reading the word of God or worshipping the Lord, was suddenly inspired to keep praising God. The meeting started and Dr. Paul Dhinakaran, called me by my name through the Holy Spirit during the prayer time. He said, “Mr. Vincent, God’s power is coming upon you right now. The power of the demon which had tormented you thus far is now put to an end. All the evil powers that were sent by the wicked people clung on to your body and were causing you all the pain. Doctors were not able to identify the cause of your suffering but Jesus is healing you right now. Mr. Vincent, be healed in Jesus’ name. I say this under the power of the Holy Spirit.

The power of God is flowing into you.” At that moment, for the first time in my life, I felt God’s love and power flooding into me filling me with great joy and peace. I was healed miraculously when Jesus came into my life. From that day, God started to bless me and lift me up. I had debts amounting to INR. 240,000, but God enabled me to clear them all! So far I have sponsored twenty four Jesus Calls TV programs. As a family we are now totally blessed.


eing a partner, we have received numerous miracles as a family through Jesus Calls ministry. My daughter and her family reside in the US. My sonin-law lost his job in November 2016 and his family went through tough times. My husband and I, being here in India were helpless. I immediately contacted the Prayer Tower for prayers and I also attended the Tuesday fasting prayers in the Prayer Tower and

prayed for them. One Sunday morning, before going to Church, I with a heavy heart, switched on the TV to watch the Jesus Calls programme. In that programme, Dr. Paul Dhinakaran called out my son-in-law’s name saying, “Mr. Rakesh, God is blessing you right now. He will give you a new future. Wonderful projects are opening up for you. He will elevate you to great heights.” We shed tears of joy when that word came directly to us. I immediately called my daughter and shared this with her. It was the 1st of December and they were getting ready to leave America and come back to India at that point. But doors of miracle started to open up for them in USA, exactly as the prophecy that was uttered by Dr. Paul Dhinakaran. God opened a new project and appointed Rakesh as a project manager in a leave vacancy in that company for 4 months. Later, He performed another miracle by posting him in a department when a person left that post. Then, God elevated him to have a permanent job in August 2017. This helped him to continue residing in that country with his wife and children. All glory to God.

I am working as Associate Professor in the Department of Zoology, Ewing Christian College, Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, India. In Allahabad one of the servants of God told me, “Sister, you go to Israel for intercession prayer as intercessor” (Psalm 122:6) .Though I had no desire of any other country in my thought, but it was God’s plan in my life. He wanted to show me His country Israel because He wanted to use me for His glory and I decided for Israel. I stayed in Jerusalem from19th December 2017 to 3rd January 2018 with the Jesus calls Prayer Group in the City Tower, at Ben yehuda Road. I spent 14 days at the feet of Jesus. It was an amazing experience for me; too much of anointing in Jerusalem I felt. God gave me this opportunity to be in His promised land (Genesis 12:1-3 & 35:10). I saw many places, the city of David, the Upper room, Sea of Galilee, and the Garden Tomb. God gave me the burden for Israel, at the stations where Jesus fell while carrying the cross for our iniquities. At the time of communion in the Garden Tomb , Spirit of the Lord touched all of us in a very strange manner when the Pastor was preaching and we all were filled with the Spirit of God. The year 2017 was ending (31st December) and the year of 2018 was beginning with prayers, prophesies, revelations and anointing, but it was the best time I ever had in my life. In the City Tower, God revealed His plans in my life and also many things started fulfilling in my life when I came back to my place. God is good all the time. In future I would love to serve at the same place .I am thankful and grateful to those who encouraged me for the intercession prayer. I am thankful to Dr. Paul Dhinakaran for his plans for the glory of God; many are benefited by his ministries. May God continue to use him and his family for His kingdom.

THE BLOOD OF JESUS “The young lions lack and suffer hunger; but those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.” (Psalm 34:10) This is a reassuring statement from the Lord – you shall not lack any good thing, provided you seek the Lord. All your possessions are nothing compared to what God has in store for you. And God is preparing every good thing to come into your life, not necessarily what you have longed for, but what He has prepared for you. For you know His thoughts are higher than our thoughts and His ways higher than ours! (Isaiah 55:8,9)


Jesus says, “If you shall ask anything in my name I will do it” (John 14:14). He promises, “when you seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, then all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33).

“Out of His fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given.” (John 1:16 NIV) It is commonly said, ‘one problem after another’ and ‘one loss after another’. But Jesus says that He will bless us with one blessing after another. “Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.” (Hebrews 6:14) Do you believe this? That’s going to be your future from

Jesus Calls International * March 2018 * www.

this moment. The Bible says, “Yes, the Lord will give what is good;” (Psalm 85:12a). One of the greatest good things that He gives us is the blood of Jesus Christ.

“And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.” (Hebrews 12:24) Do you know what that good thing is that the blood of Jesus brings? It is forgiveness of our sins! You and I can be forgiven only because of the blood of Jesus that speaks, “forgive, forgive.” For every sin that man commits, natural justice cries out, ‘punish, punish’! Satan, the accuser, is accusing us before the throne of God saying, ‘that man has committed this mistake; that woman has committed this sin; that servant of God has committed this (Revelation 12:10). All the time he is calling for judgment, for destruction, and permission to destroy. That’s what he is speaking. But then the blood of Jesus Christ speaks otherwise, He is always calling for forgiveness, because Jesus through His blood has paid the price for our sins. When the Arab – Israeli war broke out in 1967, the Egyptians had a great army and they could have destroyed Israel just like that. Even today the Israelites talk about it and say, ‘We could have been finished in just a second!” In one part of that battle, in the Sinai desert, the Egyptian army got the best of Russian tanks and they organized themselves very well whereas Israel had very few tanks and there was a mighty army coming against them, a huge army of soldiers with the best of rifles. The Egyptian army were hearing the sound, ‘forward, forward’. But when the time came for

them to meet the Israelite army, suddenly they began to hear a different command in their ears saying, “Retreat, Retreat.” The Israeli army were ready to be finished. Suddenly they saw the Egyptian army tanks turning around and going back at top speed. They were wondering what was happening! Then Israel pursued them and finally won the war. Later it was said, ‘we heard the voice saying, Retreat, Retreat’. But the army general said ‘I never said that. I said forward, forward, forward. How come you heard it otherwise?’ Till today nobody knows how that happened! When the accuser calls ‘punish, punish’, the blood of Jesus says ‘forgive, forgive’. Thank God for the blood of Jesus Christ that is available to us right now.

“Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.” (Psalm 32:1,2) Let us confess our sins for He is righteous to forgive and cleanse every sin (Proverbs 28:13; 1 John 1:7, 9). That is the greatest good thing God is giving us, forgiveness and freedom through the blood of Jesus Christ. Thank God for this good thing. Would you say, “Thank you Jesus for this good thing! I am going to hear the voice, ‘forgiven, forgiven, and forgiven!’”

GOD’S DESIGN FOR COUPLES “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” (Genesis 2:18) God said, “It is not good for man to be alone” and so He created a helpmate for Adam. The Bible

Shining Stars of Karunya “They looked to Him and were radiant and their faces were not ashamed” Psalm 34:5. It was a felicitous decision that I had taken to choose Karunya Institute of Technology & Sciences for my undergraduate studies since I had heard a lot about the founding family and their incredible works for the prosperity of the society. Their esteemed services for the welfare of the people and their spiritual qualities and services really helped me to choose Karunya.

Mr. Jossy Rajan

(2013–2017 B.Tech. Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering), Department of Electrical Sciences

Initially I was struggling because I was away from my Parents, later I got adapted with the atmosphere there and had gained many friends from different parts of the country. It was a remarkable experience for me to talk and blend with numerous people of versatile cultures and traditions. Gradually, I started playing keyboard for the assembly sections and participated in many spiritual activities. Undoubtedly, Karunya truly helped me to lead a spiritual life and had given me immense opportunities to sing and play instruments for the Glory of God.

Though I had a fear about my academics initially, by God’s grace I could score a Cumulative Grade Point 8.47 and it enhanced my confidence. The Department was really a blessing for me. I did not know about the importance and future scope of Instrumentation engineering before joining this department. But, God had given me plenteous chances to cultivate myself in academics as well as in Non-academic areas. On this journey, I had received many achievements which includes EIE 2017 batch Class Representative, President of EIE Department Association, Student Representative for Salzer Electronics Ltd, Best Outgoing Student Award 2017, Student Coordinator for the university tech fest ‘MINDKRAFT 2K17’. From my childhood it was my dream to pursue higher studies in foreign countries. By God’s grace, I have attained a very good score in IELTS exam and soon I would be moving abroad for my M.S Degree. I could achieve all this because of the prayers of my parents and support of my teachers. Karunya made me a shining star for Gods Glory! 14

Ms. Angelin Augustin

(2012–2016 B.Tech. Electronics & Communication Engineering; 2016 - 2018 M.Tech. Communication Systems), Department of Electrical Sciences

To start with, I was born and brought up in a Christian family. God helped me to join Karunya for my higher studies. Even when I joined Karunya I didn’t know which stream I should opt for. I wished to do B.Arch because I was pretty good at drawings and I loved it. But, God had some different and much greater plan for me. So, I opted for Electrical and Electronics Engineering(EEE). I used to do my part of doing hard work. But as it is written in Psalm 127:1 “Unless the Lord builds the house, the builder labor in vain”, it’s God who has blessed me to be the rank-holder of the Department in all the semesters till now. Praise be to God alone. God blessed me to get placed in Accenture. He has blessed me to have good roommates and colleagues with whom I was able to share Gospel and God’s love. “Those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.” I was also able to learn and get closer to God having a wider aspect on different issues. Prayer meetings and fellowships in Karunya has molded me to a different level of the spiritual aspect. Yes, it true that it was not an easy going but then God brought me here with His divine plan and purpose and I am blessed to win souls for Christ. Praise the Lord!

Praise God. I finished my B.Tech. and M.Tech. in Karunya. God has bestowed me with his blessings since my day one in Karunya. God blessed me academically and spiritually. Prayer Cells, Bethesda prayers and Special blessing meetings helped to grow close to God and also exemplary teaching by the staff here made me to score well in my studies. I come from a normal middle class family. I had never dreamt of going to a foreign country while I was still studying. But to my surprise after finishing third review of my final year project, I got a call from my department that I had an opportunity to do my Internship in Technion University, Israel, which is one the best universities in world. It was a moment of great joy to me and my family as I was the first girl in my family to fly abroad. I had hardly few days to finish all the formalities, but due to the grace of God and support of my staff and administration, everything went on successfully. I was given with a safe accommodation and sufficient stipend by Technion University. It was one of the best things happened to me in life. Along with my internship I could also experience Bible alive in Israel. I am so thankful to Karunya Institute of Technology & Sciences for giving such life time opportunities to students, to go and visit other countries which help us to increase our confidence and knowledge.

Job affirmed, Lord descended upon Mount “By His light I walked through Sinai to manifest Himself to darkness” (Job 29:3) and the Moses, the entire mountain Psalmist was confident that the was set aflame (Exodus 19:18); Lord God would enlighten his and the people who saw it did darkness (Psalm 18:28).

There prophet Micah again declared, was such blinding light, but “When I sit in darkness, the the Bible says that by its side Lord will be a light to me” there were also clouds and thick (Micah 7:8). darkness (Deuteronomy 4:11). The Lord who had led Our God is a wonderful God. Abraham, Isaac and Jacob Strange and mysterious are His through darkness and danger ways! will be our Light as well and Very often we equate God’s lead us amidst any darkness that power and His performance may engulf us. Hence, let us not with our limited wisdom and lose heart. He is all sufficient doings. However, God is God for us. and man is merely man. The From what type of dangers Bible says that He remembers and darkness does God desire that we are dust. “He has to deliver us? established the world by His Darkness of sin wisdom” (Jeremiah 10:12). His power and wisdom are Everyone wanted the woman boundless. Our Lord Jesus caught in adultery to be stoned asked the Pharisees, “Are you to death. But Jesus said that he

who was sinless among them could first cast a stone at her. None dared and Jesus told her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more. Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life” (John 8:11,12). Yes, Jesus came into this world to lighten our pathway. Jesus looked at a frustrated man lying diseased for 38 years. In a moment He diagnosed his disease (John 5:1-9). Yes, with a quick glance He comes to know our pains and problems. Once, when I had been to Bangalore, a young man came to me saying, “Sir, look at my legs for a moment. I am lame and have no job. How long am I to endure such a life? Please heal me” and he tightly clutched my hands. A bedridden sister, who had lost the use of her legs in an accident, told me, “Brother, I have remained in bed for four years. How long should I endure this pain? Do heal me.” Yes, we are living in a world full of sorrow and pain. Men may not notice you, and you may not confide in men, but the merciful eyes of Jesus are watching you. He will drive away your sorrows and grant you joy.

The enemy makes us dwell in darkness. Of the devil, Christ said, “He is a liar and the father of it…He comes to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 8:44) The devil is another evil force ever opposed to us. He can seize a man’s life in two ways. He comes into hearts filled with darkness and resides there. When there is no light in our hearts, we ourselves give room for the devil to reside in them (Matthew 12:43). Another method he adopts is to stand by our side and prompt us to do evil. At first the devil would have come and stood beside Judas and then he might have told him that Jesus, for all His miracles, was only a carpenter. What would he gain by following a mere carpenter? (John 13:2). Shouldn’t he have a band of his own? Judas perhaps listened to the evil suggestion and betrayed Jesus. But Jesus says, “I have come that you may have life, and that you may have it more abundantly(John10;10).”

heals all those in the grip of the devil. When His light fills our hearts, the devil trembles at our sight. The man who had the spirit of an unclean devil, when he saw Jesus, cried out with a loud voice (Luke 4:34,35). There was another man with an unclean spirit who lived naked among the tombs. There were about 2000 devils within him. He broke the fetters and chains with which he was bound and bruised himself with stones. He was not aware that he was bruising his own body. That was because the devil was within him(Mark 5:1-5).

Yes, evil forces surround us. They stand beside us and stir up evil thoughts in us. They come in if we give them room. But if Jesus were to come into our hearts they dare not approach us. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love (Colossians 1:13). God dwells in the unapproachable light which no man has seen. Christ sits on His right hand. There is a light which surrounds Darkness of them both and no one can enter Sickness that region. Christ alone is The devil can also bring about omnipotent there. As claimed certain diseases in your body. by Him, all power is given unto The doctor may examine your Him in heaven and in earth( body and say that there is Matthew 28:18). What a great nothing wrong with you. Jesus security it is for us when our 18

life is hidden in Him. Is it not an esteemed privilege to have this light within us and dwell in its unapproachable region? There are devils, black-magic, sorcery and witchcraft in this world; but Christ has power over them all. If Jesus were to live in your hearts these adversaries will bow their heads on seeing you. As St. Paul was going along the road one day, a woman possessed with the spirit of divination saw him and cried, “These men are the servants of the Most High God” (Acts 16:17,18). The devil can recognize us. You may be illiterate, unable to even read the Bible. But if Jesus were to live in your hearts, even a million devils have no power to touch you. Know this for certain that all the devils, magic, witchcraft and necromancy cannot even touch your hearts. When Jesus, who triumphed over all, dwells in us there is no doubt that the devil will flee in terror. The wicked devil tortures our hearts and tries to fill them with darkness, but our Saviour Jesus has power over darkness. He who said, “I am the light of the world”, also said, “In My name they will cast out demons” (Mark 16:17). It just means that the devil will tremble at the name of Jesus. Why should we think of the devil and tremble

He wrote just a single line, “Everything is dark.” He could not proceed further and just fell down dead. But those who have received Jesus Christ, the Light of life, in their hearts gladly welcome death. For only through the door of death can one enter Paradise, where millions of angels are waiting to welcome us. Jesus Himself sits there and receives us saying, “Enter thou unto the joy of the Lord.” What makes the Psalmist say, “Yea, though

death. A victim of acute heart disease, she was taken to the hospital and surgery was done on her. She then called her sister and said, “I am going to the heavenly abode of our Father, where I will see our father and mother.” As she said these words her eyes dimmed. She had preached about Jesus for so many years, healed many in His name and demonstrated that He is still alive. When she closed her eyes a divine light entered the room, covered her face and spread to her legs. Shortly the entire room was filled with that light and life had ceased. Yes! We do not desire to shed

this body by ourselves. We wait for the divine life of Jesus to swallow death. In fact, He came to the earth to swallow death (II Corinthians 5:4). How is this darkness to be dispelled? While hanging on the Cross, Christ pleaded with God to forgive those who reviled Him. He promised a place in paradise for the thief who was crucified by His side. He took leave of His mother and asked her to accept His disciple John as her son in His place. And to His disciple John He commended His mother (John 19:26-28). After that, darkness enveloped the Cross for three full hours (Matthew 27:45). He who brought light into the world, He who witnessed that the darkness did not comprehend the light, He who declared, “I am the light of the world”, suffered in darkness. He cried in bitter agony, “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?” Let us not be troubled in our hearts and minds because the same Jesus says, “I am Eternal Light” and waits to shed that light on us. He is waiting to send that light to all those who ask for this light of life, victory over sin, calmness, peacefulness and happiness in life, because He is the Eternal Light.

Jesus Calls New Zealand Blessed Above and Beyond

I graduated last December and in the course of my study, in my final semester, as part of my degree programme I was required to complete 150 hours of internship. I applied to many places but the managers kept declining my application stating that they did not do student placements or they did not have the capacity to accommodate students. I was getting anxious after all these rejections; I desperately needed to find a place as time was running out. I have been attending meetings at Jesus Calls NZ Prayer Tower in Mt. Roskill and have heard people share their testimonies during these meetings. So I also decided to come to the Prayer Tower and seek prayers. The prayer intercessors prayed earnestly, asking the Lord that a door may open for me to do my internship. Just a few days after I sought prayers, one of the companies who had previously rejected my application emailed me to say that I could do my placement with them. Praise God! I was thrilled and started my placement. Just after a week of my placement, my supervisor said that the company was very happy with my work. They asked if I would like to work for them after I completed my degree. Where I was finding it difficult getting in for placement, in that very same place they are offering me a job too. Hallelujah!

Generation But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: (1 Peter 2:9)


n the Old Testament of the Bible, we read that early men of God, Enoch and Noah walked with God (Genesis 5:24; 6:9). We should be aware that accordingly, we too can walk with God as a family and interact with Him, even today. “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me’ (Revelation 3:20). As the Bible says thus, when we open our heart to Jesus who knocks at the door of our heart, He would enter in happily and change us into His own people. We can feel His sweet presence 24

filling our house. Let us meditate on a few families in the Bible which God made as His own and blessed:

Family that believed the Lord Terah, Abraham’s father did not know the Lord God. One day, he took with him, his son Abraham, his grandson Lot and Sarai the wife of Abraham to go to the land of Canaan. But when they came to Haran, Terah died at the age of 205 years (Genesis 11: 32). It was then the Lord graciously called Abraham from that family. When Abraham departed Haran, he was 75 years old (Genesis 12:4). He had no

-Mrs.Stella Dhinakaran

child. One day, the Lord took him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them’ (Genesis 15:5) and further said, “No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations… I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you’(Genesis 17:5,6). At that time when there was no hope and when he was an old man of 100 years, and in that state when Sarah had passed the age of child bearing, he held on to that promise. Dear ones, the Lord invites us lovingly and wants to deliver us from the power of

Jesus Calls International * March 2018 * www.

darkness and make us as His own people (Colossians 1:13). He has given us promises from the Scriptures just as how He gave promises to Abraham. Several years back, my husband and my five year old daughter Angel were critically ill and nearing death. I was in great agony. That time I happened to read the history of Job in the Bible. The words on how he trusted God and held on to Him even after losing all his wealth, riches, his ten children on the same day and even after being assailed by terrible diseases, encouraged me. I too held on to the Lord’s words. The Lord miraculously removed the shadow of death in my family and made me happy by sending His light. Accordingly, sorrows and sufferings may attack your family in many ways. At such times, instead of running to man to share your difficulties and get comfort, if you diligently read the promises which God has given us so freely, every day, He would speak to you. Then the more you read His Scriptures and believe on it, the more you would enjoy the Lord’s presence, blessings and comfort. Contrary to hope, Abraham believed the Lord’s words which said, ‘I will make your descendants as the sand of the sea and the stars of heaven. You will be a father of many

nations’. He was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform. (Romans 4:18-21). That’s why the Lord, who does great and mighty things, blessed Sarah’s dead womb and multiplied that family according to His word. Also through his dear son Isaac, whom God has given as per His promise, He tested the sincere love of Abraham on Him (II Corinthians 8:8). Then He said, “Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.” (Genesis 22:2). What a great agony Abraham would have undergone when God asked him to offer his son Isaac as an offering! Yet, he held on to the promise given to Him by the Lord. Concluding that God who had promised, “In Isaac your seed shall be called’ was able to raise him up, even from the dead, he offered up his only begotten son; from which he also received him in a figurative sense’ (Genesis 21:12; Hebrews 11:15-19). Hence, the Lord blessed Abraham in all things, blessed him greatly and made him great (Genesis 24:1,35). This world lies under the sway of the wicked one (I John 5:19). In order to deliver us

from this horrible state and from the present evil age, God the Father, sent His Son Jesus to this world (Galatians 1:4). He gave Himself for us on the cross (Ephesians 5:2). Even today, this loving God wants to deliver you from the darkness of this world and from all tribulations, and tells you, I gave Myself on the cross for you; I was bruised and broken; I was scourged and torn; they spat on my face; I was crowned with thorns; I endured all these sufferings solely for the reason to deliver you from darkness and bring you into the light”. Do you want to serve Him, as a family? Love the Lord with your whole heart, like Abraham did. Trust Him. Seek the Lord as a family and pour out your tears to Him. Be firm and steadfast even when trials attack you to test the sincerity of your love. The Lord who does wonders will show you wonders (Micah 7:15). He will give you the grace to serve Him as a family.

Family that showed love to the Lord “Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace, comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work” (IIThessalonians 2:16,17).

Jesus Calls International * March 2018 * www.


The Lord, who loves us, expects love from us. In the final chapter of the Gospel of John in the Bible, the resurrected Jesus looks at His disciple Peter and asks him, ‘Do you love Me?’ When the Lord Jesus was on this earth, there was a family – Martha, Mary and Lazarus – in Bethany, which loved Him dearly. Martha, who accepted the Lord with great love, and did not ask and receive what ought to have been received from jesus. Rather she was worried and troubled about many things. Jesus Himself said about her thus (Luke 10:38,41). On the other hand, Mary, her sister, sat at Jesus’ feet and heard His word and thus chose that good part (Luke 10: 39, 42). Sometimes, we too are constrained by the various worries of the world and become dejected easily, instead of asking and receiving profound spiritual things from the Lord. So, cast all your care upon Him, for He cares for you (I Peter 5:7), lest your hearts be weighed down (Luke 21:34). Once when Jesus went out of Jericho, a great multitude followed Him. And behold, two blind men sitting by the road, when they heard that Jesus was passing by, cried out, saying, “Have mercy on us, O Lord, Son of David!” So Jesus stood still and called them, 26

and said, “What do you want Me to do for you?” (Matthew 20:29-32) and opened their eyes. Similarly, Jesus saw a man lying in the porch of the pool called Bethesda, for 38 years, and asked him, “Do you want to be made well?’ and healed him (John 5:6). There was a brother, who knew the Lord, but did not believe Him. He used to go to church regularly but there was no connection between him and God. At that juncture, he fell critically ill and was admitted in a Christian hospital. The doctors who tested him advised for a heart surgery. On hearing this, he was gripped by fear. Since he had no connection with the Lord, he struggled not knowing how to pray. When he was taken into the operation theatre, he saw the verse “I will give you a new heart’ (Ezekiel 36:26) written on the wall. As the Bible says, ‘Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart’ (Jeremiah 15:16), this verse encouraged him. He trusted the Lord fully and submitted himself for the surgery with joy. The Lord helped him and gave him a new heart. Since then, he fully believed on the Lord and became His son. Dear ones, are you going through a similar path today? Do not be troubled. Open your heart and your home to Jesus, who sees your tears. When you call to Him, He would be near

you and wipe away your tears (Psalm 145:18,19). He will make you happy.

Family that walked with Fear of God There was a certain man called Cornelius, a centurion, a devout man and one who feared God with all his household, who gave alms generously to the people, and prayed to God always (Acts 10:2). The Bible says that the family that fears God and walks in His ways is blessed. He would dwell in such a family and bless it. Such a family would see the good of Jerusalem all the days of life’ (Psalm 128). How to live godly as a family, everyday? Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths’ (Proverbs 3:5,6). An important thing that ought to be done by every family that says, “We have known the Lord” is to jointly hold on to the feet of the Lord, early in the morning. The Bible says, ‘…those who seek me diligently (in early morning) will find me’ (Proverbs 8:17). My father-in-law used to sit for family prayer exactly at 6 O’clock in the morning. It is his zealous godliness that builds our family even today.

Jesus Calls International * March 2018 * www.

As he taught us that day, every morning we seek the Lord’s feet, as a family. Then the Holy Spirit would speak to us through the gift of prophecy. At that time, we would pray with tears not only for us but also for each and every partner of the Jesus Calls ministry and for those who write to us their problem. When our family which is like yours can pray for you, can’t you pray as a family? A family that prays together stays together. Division, rifts and sufferings would be there in the family where there is no prayer. When God’s Kingdom and righteousness are sought first, He will add all the other things (Matthew 6:33). Also, by praying together, like mindedness, same love and one accord is formed (Philippians 2:2). Perhaps if you are short tempered, when you pray together, the Holy Spirit would come in your midst and will fill you with the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:7) and which the world cannot give (John 14:27). He will bind your family with unity and one accord. Several years back, there was a small misunderstanding between Queen Victoria of England and her husband. In a huff, he left for his room and locked it. The Queen too locked herself in her room. A few minutes later, the Queen had

an idea. She came out of her room, knocked at her husband’s door and said politely, ‘Open the door”. But he did not open the door. Finally she said with authority, “I, Queen Victoria, command you to open the door”. Any citizen, whoever it may be, should obey the Queen’s order. So, he came out and then she stooped from her status of being a ‘Queen’ and humbled herself as his wife. Both of them sought each other’s pardon and got reconciled. Yes, when unwanted characteristics such as bitterness, envy and enmity crop up, look up to the Lord. He will totally change all your unwanted nature and grant you a sweet and pleasant family life. When the husband and wife live united with the Lord, there would not be any room for division in that family according to the promise, ‘a threefold cord is not quickly broken’ (Ecclesiastes 4:12). Shun worldly pleasures and join the Lord. Joy would overflow in your family. The man called Cornelius in the Bible, prayed to God always. Hence, the Lord wanted to bless his entire household and ordered His angel to bring His disciple Peter. Having sent men to bring Peter, Cornelius was waiting, calling together his relatives and close friends.

When Peter was speaking the Word of God to that household, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word (Acts 10:44). One man’s thirst (Isaiah 44:3), made the whole family, relatives and friends receive the Holy Spirit. Dear ones, we have come to the last days. When we see the several things that are happening in the world, it could be deciphered that the Lord would be coming soon. Isn’t it? What are you going to do for the Lord, as a family? Like Cornelius, would you ask, ‘Lord, change my family into a godly family; fill us with the Holy Spirit; let us arise as witnesses for you as a family”. He will make you His own people. He would bless you just as how He delivered Abraham’s family from darkness and multiplied it; He will shower His love on you and lift you up as a family and establish you even though you may be passing through the valley of the shadow of death, like the family of Martha and Mary. He will change your family into a godly one just as how He did for Cornelius family and thrill you by filling you with His Holy Spirit. May the Lord bless you to live as a family chosen by Him, to be diligent in fulfilling His will and to shine for Him by getting filled with His presence!
